Moto Jacket Street Style

As I sat in the living room on Valentine’s Day happily munching away on the chocolates my hubby bought me, I stared outside at the Arctic-tundra like conditions dreaming of spring.

Despite it being -500C outside, I’m heartened knowing that there is only a few more weeks of horrible winter left. You know what that means? Spring fashion is right around the corner. Continue reading Moto Jacket Street Style

January is the perfect time of the year to make fashion resolutions, if you have not done this already. Although, we are yet to wait and see which new trends will emerge in 2016 and which old will fade away. But we are not talking about more shopping here. It is more about reevaluating the wardrobe choices you made in the previous year in order to make smarter choices this year.

#FeatureFriday: Coralie’s Closet Shares Her All-Star Makeup Team

One of the things I love most about blogging is meeting other like-minded bloggers. Over the past year, I’ve been lucky to meet and learn from some of the most stylish, smart and interesting bloggers that seem a little hidden away in our somewhat stuffy, conservative city. While at home brainstorming ideas for future blog posts, I thought it would be a great idea to feature some of my favourite bloggers on Style Domination. #FeatureFriday was soon born!

Behind Closed Doors: Trends Too Ugly To Leave The House

I was reading one of my favourite blogs, Garance Doré, and came across her post outlining the incredulity and shock she experienced when she found herself waiting in line to buy a pair of “dreaded” Uggs…  “Those weird cartoon boots that make your feet look enormous and end up all deformed like some kind of helium inflated sock. Those hideous winter things that people wear in the summer. Those brownish, post-adolescent uglies that people wear to be like everyone else.” OUCH. Admittedly, I have owned several pairs of Uggs in my lifetime. Ok – they aren’t Loubs, but they were just too snuggly to pass up. No regrets.

Truly Original Style at Afropunk Fest 2015

If you have been reading my blog, you’ll know already of my tendency to harp on personal style.  In a world full of fast-fashion and cookie-cutter “of-the-moment” looks, it’s truly a breath of fresh air to see an original and creative outfit.

As I sat watching the Bill Cunningham New York documentary last night, I wondered what happened to all of those cool people who only dressed for themselves, who didn’t care about labels and who truly viewed dressing as an art form. I am lucky enough to know a few of these types…and when I say a “few”, I mean a small few. Continue reading Truly Original Style at Afropunk Fest 2015

Seven Habits of Very Stylish People

Anyone with a ton of disposable income can buy themselves a topnotch wardrobe…but does that really make you stylish?  Not from what I’ve seen.

Style is more than arming yourself with the latest it-bag and slipping on the coolest shoes out there.  It’s defining your personal style with confidence.  I’ve seen it many times all over the place…people armed with hugely expensive designer pieces that don’t pair well with what they are wearing, women teetering on sky high Pigalles and looking like they hate every moment of it. That is not style, my friends. Continue reading Seven Habits of Very Stylish People

Signature Styles of the Rich and Famous

Getting dressed for work every morning for me is a bit of a sport.  I reach for the same 10-15 pieces on a weekly basis, carefully alternating work-appropriate skinnies, skirts, dresses, blazers, blouses and sweaters in an effort to look presentable and cute… without the hassle of buying more work clothes (mainly because I want to save all of my money for buying cool jeans that I don’t need).   Continue reading Signature Styles of the Rich and Famous
